What’s the news?

West Virginia’s small businesses, affected by COVID-19’s socially-distant world, can use West Virginia University’s Encova Center, to navigate the new reality through a series of webinars beginning Monday.

The Center, hosted by the John Chambers College of Business and Economics, will continue the series through December. Monday’s topic is attracting more customers online using digital tools and the Black-owned business attribute.  


“Supporting our state businesses is always an important facet of our land-grant mission, but it’s even more important now that small businesses are facing increased strains due to the extended impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope businesses will take advantage of these free resources that will be led by Google, the U.S. Black Chambers, Inc. and state experts.”-Anna Carrier, Community Business Program lead for the WVU Encova Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship

“The West Virginia business community can and will persevere through COVID-19. Businesses who are adaptable and armed with the right resources to support their employees and customers will successfully navigate this crisis, and as part of our land-grant mission, WVU is offering resources that can help them do just that through our Community Business Program and free Grow with Google workshops.” -Javier Reyes, dean of the Chambers College and vice president for Start-up West Virginia.
